The Daintree Tea Company is a locally owned company established since 1878. It is located on the Cubbagudta Plantation situated in the world’s oldest continuously living Daintree Rainforest. The word Cubbagudta means ‘rainy place’ in the language of the local Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people.
The Tea is grown and processed in the Daintree Rainforest and is pesticide free.
Harvesting occurs on a regular basis, approximately two weeks apart. Plucking the soft green shoots, the young leaf is transported to the processing factory where it is withered, crushed, oxidised, dried and sorted and ready for packaging. This process only takes 24 hours, ensuring the freshest product is always available.
Tony’s Tropical Tours is a great supporter of local products and we are pleased to provide this tea daily to our guests on tour.
